Hi all,
I have a 4.7 STABLE (production) server and I 
need to upgrade it to atleast 4.11 STABLE. What 
would be the best upgrade path inorder to 
minimize any problems? The server is located in a 
co-location 5 hours drive from where I'm so a 
network upgrade without problems would be perfect. :-)

Should I just run a cvsup with RELENG 4_11 and 
upgrade src/ports, compile a new kernel and make 
world or should I go through the varous versions up to 4.11 step by step?

Also, are there any imidiate problems upgrading 4.11 to 5.4?

Thanks for your help!

Best regards,
Andreas W. Andersen
